click above to view more high-res live shots of BMW M3 ALMS race car

When it comes to racing, diversity is key. Who doesn't love to root for their favorite brand to win against its fiercest rivals? We hope that BMW gets its latest M3 certified by the FIA in time for a showdown against with the Corvette and others in Le Mans GT racing, which will institute a new set of rules for the 2010 season. There's more than one way to get horsepower from a V8 engine, as clearly demonstrated by these two diametrically opposed class competitors. Team Corvette's brute strength and low-down grunt would go up against finesse and high-strung reviness from BMW. Kinda reminds us of the classic Ford versus Ferrari feuds of the '60s. In any case, BMW now needs to work with the FIA to get its racer properly sanctioned and approved, as it has already done for the American Le Mans racing series. Git 'r done, folks.

      Corvette, Aston, Ferrari, Porsche, Dodge, Ford and possibly Audi and BMW...sounds like a great lineup. I cant wait!

      I'm very glad to see them returning to ALMS and FIA GT......the more brands the better for everyone. How-ver you do realize the Corvettes will be so handicapped it will be a real concern. Expect major weight, aero, and intake restrictions, on the Vettes to keep them from running away. A normal "low tech" Nascar spec 6.0 Chevy puts out a very reliable 875 HP. Imagine what a "hightech" ALMS Katech built 5.5 LS3 will be capable of...... Look for all kinds of restrictions.

        You do realise that the NASCAR engines are nothing like the LS engines right?

      Can anyone confirm if those wheels are the BBS Forged Aluminum RE Monoblocs?
      • 6 Years Ago
      You all are so right, my bad, I glanced at it and the shadow under the mirror appeard to be a handle, bad eyes!
      • 6 Years Ago
      The gills behind the rear wheels are hideous but otherwise it's HOT.
      I love the exhaust and the design between them for the rear valence. Too bad the regular car has the exhausts so close together and not as aggressive.
